Does running cause breast implant ruptures

Posted: Yesterday at 15:18

Sorry you have had problems.  I have had the same treatment, for the same reason, and so far so good (3 years on). I wear a VERY supportive sports bra for running so that nothing moves, ever, and I always wear a bra or crop top of some sort, day and night.  Other than that (and I'm sure you do the same) I'm not sure what else you can do, and I suspect maybe you are just very unlucky.  My surgeon was absolutely fine about me running again with the (very obvious) caveat that I was well supported at all times

Have you ever been first in an event?

I came first in my age category at a local HM this morning - took me a while to figure out what the 1 beside my name was - well exciting 

Annoyances when out running

Running for 5 minutes then realising you wished you hadn't worn those particular shorts/socks/top/gloves etc etc.  so then you spend the next 5 minutes trying to decide if it's worth going home to change, by which time it's too late, and you go on to have an uncomfortably hot/cold or generally Unsatisfactory Run.

Term time holidays

Kinda annoying for the teacher who can't deliver their planned lesson cos half the class have buggered off on a cheap holiday, or for the rest of the class who miss out on a planned activity cos there aren't enough to make up the numbers. Teachers and the rest of the school staff are required to be there; so are the children.  Unfortunately most don't see it that way and only consider the impact on their own child and holiday budget.  And in my experience (parent and partner of a teacher) the vast majority of parents who take their children out of school for a cheap(er) holiday can well afford the more expensive version during school holidays, so it's rarely a case of 'cheap holiday or no holiday'

Either way, find some knee and hip strengthening exercises on Youtube etc and do them a couple of times a week, every week.  Works wonders 

Have you ever nearly died?

All good thanks.  Two VLMs since with two successful ballot entries so my luck has definitely changed for the better

January 2011, found a lump in my breast. Two weeks later hospital consultant was telling me it was stage 1 cancer - oh and they found two stage 2 tumours in the other breast - and it's probably spread to the lymph nodes but they're not sure.  I had the whole lot removed within 3 weeks and went back in three weeks after that to get the (confirmed cancerous) lymph nodes out.  Then 5 months of chemotherapy. I was 47, two young daughters, fit, clean living non smoker.  The hardest bit was probably picking up the phone to see my GP but the early diagnosis probably saved my life.

Any smokers on here? What are your best times?

Jesus.  Smoking accounts for 80-90% of lung cancers.  By the time you get diagnosed with lung cancer it's usually too late and you will probably die.  And you're worried about effing pbs.  Wtf

Running with a rupture - and not where you think!

prob best to ask your surgeon/cancer nurse?  Although you will need a few weeks off after surgery anyway - are they replacing the implant?  (Just curious as I have same)

Did anyone have a worse ParkRun than me today!

I don't drink - but if a good session on Friday night got me within sight of 21 minutes I might have to reconsider
